      1842. Un carnet in - 8 de 28 feuillets de couleurs en divers tons pastels, recueillant 26 superbes silhouettes découpées sur papier vert, avec en sus un petit canivet orné d'un dessin au crayon signé Ysaure et daté au verso : Bagnères, 29 août 1842. On joint divers découpis ou éléments de paysages, dont un seulement ébauché. Provenant du fonds d'archives de la famille de l'orientaliste Decamps et de la dynastie des libraires Dentu, il est difficile d'attribuer l'auteur de ces petites merveilles avec certitude. Mais la finesse du travail, l'intelligence de la composition et la qualité de préservation de ces fragiles sculptures sur papier concourent à la valeur de ce document rare. Un superbe témoignage des loisirs délicats d'une demoiselle bien née, sous la Monarchie de Juillet. Français

        The Travellers meeting with Minatarre Indians. Near Fort Clark

      Paris, London, Coblenz 1842 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Alex Manceau after Bodmer. This is one Bodmer's most famous images: the only depiction he made of both his sponsor, Prince Maximilian, and of himself. The travelers spent the winter of 1833-1834 at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart rivers in the territory of the Mandan and Hidatsa Tribes, Bodmer here shows the their first meeting to with the Hidatsas outside the palisade fortification of the fort; a carefully composed image ably portraying the wary curiosity with which the representatives of two very different ways of life greeted each other. Bodmer stands, top-hatted, to the far right, Prince Maximilian is next to him, Dreidoppel is visible behind the two of them. The individuals amongst the Hidatsa include Ahschüpsa Masihichsi (`Chief of the Pointed Horn') whom Bodmer had painted on 28 February 1834. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

A history of the first Carlist War written by a French officer who served in the Carlist army throughout the conflict, this work provides an interesting description of life in the Carlist army, as well as details of the military campaign and its leaders, Zumalacarregui and Cabrera.The immediate subject of the war was the contested succession to the throne in Spain, and indeed the future of the Spanish monarchy. Ferdinand VII had left the throne to his very young daughter, Isabella II, thus preventing his nephew, Carlos, from acceding to a throne that he had long expected to inherit. The result was civil war. Perhaps surprisingly, both the French and British governments supported Isabella II and not Carlos. 'Yet the Carlist War had deeper roots than were at first apparent to foreign observers. Not only in the Basque provinces, but in Spain as a whole, it was a struggle between those who clung to old traditions and those who wanted to jettison the old Spain and create a new liberal state. Carlism represented an agrarian, clerical, separatist and feudal movement, eagerly supported in rural areas where familiar ways of life were threatened by economic change; ranged against them were the urban, anti-clerical, centralising and commercial liberals, with whom the Queen Regent had to form an uneasy alliance for the prosecution of the war. Don Carlos's claim to the throne was the starting-point of the long conflict between traditionalism and liberalism in Spain' (Holt, The Carlist Wars in Spain, p. 45).A note on the verso of the half-title explains that the work was sold for the benefit of the soldiers of Carlos' army who had taken refuge in France.Palau 24744.

Der Zulauf zu dieser Sehenswürdigkeit - die Dressur der Hunde und Affen war psychologisch merkwürdig - war ein ungeheurer. In wenigen Wochen hatte S. einen Gewinn von über 20.000 fl. erzielt. Aber mit diesem Glücke seines Unternehmens schritt das Unglück in seiner Familie Hand in Hand. Kaum in Wien angekommen, erkrankten Frau und Kinder am Typhus. Kaum waren aber diese genesen, wurde er selbst von der Seuche hingerafft. Das Theater führte nun die Witwe fort. Später übernahm das Ganze Casanova, der in Schreyer’s Diensten gestanden und der nun einige Zeit noch in Wien Vorstellungen gab. Im Jahre 1861 brachte der damalige Volkssänger Fürst die Bude käuflich an sich, gestaltete sie um und eröffnete sie am 21. April 1862 als Singspielhalle, aus welcher das Volkstheater im Prater und zuletzt das „Fürst-Theater“ sich entwickelte. Anregend im Hinblick auf Abrichtung der Thiere, wirkte die Schreyer’sche Affenbude auf die Bevölkerung ganz anders, wie der Cancan der Fürst’schen Bühne! Noch sei bemerkt, daß Schreyer während seines kurzen Aufenthaltes in Wien im Jahre 1847 dem im genannten Jahre errichteten Affenhause in der Schönbrunner Menagerie die erste Affenbevölkerung lieferte.\" Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Narrative of Various Journeys in Balochistan, Afghanistan and the Panjab;

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1842-3. [together with;] Narrative of a Journey to Kalat. 4 volumes octavo. Original matching purple combed cloth, title gilt to the spines, panelling in blind to the boards, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece and one other similar plate to each volume of the first-named, together with numerous wood-cut illustrations to the text; large folding map to the pendant volume. All spines a little sunned, and crumpled head and tail with some minor splits and chips, overall a little rubbed, and bumped at the extremities, light browning to the text-blocks, and some foxing particularly to the plates; the pendant volume neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, end papers renewed, folding map with two closed tears, no loss; a very good set. First editions. Considered "to be the most enigmatic among the European explorers" of the north-west frontier, Masson (1800-53), was born John Lewis in London, and in 1821 enlisted as a private in the East India Company's infantry, later transferring to the Bengal European Artillery. He was present at the siege of Bharatpur in 1826 but deserted in early July 1827 in Agra and changed his name. He travelled to Afghanistan and embarked on over a decade of "pioneering travel and antiquarian investigation. During this period he collected well over 80,000 ancient coins and other objects which first provided a chronology of the dynasties of central Asia in the unknown centuries after the death of Alexander the Great. From 1834 Masson published news of his discoveries in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. The following year he was recruited by the East India Company as news writer in Afghanistan, in return for a free pardon for his desertion and a small allowance" (ODNB). He also offered "the first hint of the historical importance of Harappa" (Robinson, The Indus, p.28), one of the major sites of the ancient Indus Valley culture. In the years immediately before the First Afghan War, Masson was strongly critical of the Forward Policy, using his narrative to comment adversely on the conduct of Alexander Burnes and Sir William Macnaughten . He left Afghanistan in 1838 and during the ensuing British invasion remained in Sind, compiling the first-named work. "In attempting to return to Afghanistan in 1840, he became accidentally embroiled in the Baluchistan revolt and was imprisoned by the British authorities without either charge or good reason" events which he describes in the pendant volume. He returned to Britain in 1842, a typically embittered and disputatious ex-HEIC employee, failing "in his efforts to obtain financial compensation, to publish an illustrated magnum opus about his Afghan years, to return to Afghanistan, and to complete a half-finished novel". Although Masson lacked any formal training, "as an accurate observer of, and extensive traveller in, a virtually unknown land he was unrivalled", and the present narrative "has been judged to be a record which is unsurpassed ? for the width of its scope of inquiry into political, social, economic and scientific matters and the general accuracy of its conclusion" (Chopra). Ownership initials of Lieut.-Col. John Archibald Ballard, dated 1857 to the front free endpaper of volume I. Ballard was educated at Addiscombe, and commissioned in the Bengal Engineers in 1850. He earned a considerable reputation for his "cool bravery in action" (Buckland) during his services attached to the Turkish forces in the Crimea, commanding a brigade in Omar Pasha's campaign in Mingrelia. "Ballard returned to India in 1856 [&] served as assistant quartermaster-general in the Persian campaign, and afterwards in the Indian mutiny with the Rajputana field force, taking part in the pursuit and rout of Tantia Topi's forces. His promotion was singularly rapid, advancing in 1858 from lieutenant to lieutenant-colonel. He was subsequently mint-master at Bombay. Having attained the rank of lieutenant-general, he retired in 1879" (ODNB). An attractive set of this important memoir of turbulent times on the frontier.

        Sketches of Foreign Travel and Life at Sea; including a cruise on board a man-of-war, as also a visit to Spain, Portugal.... and a treatise on the navy of the United States

      Boston, 1842. First edition. Frontispiece. xviii, [ii], 404, viii, 437, [blank]pp. 8vo. Original black blindstamped cloth, spine gilt, corners slightly rubbed. A fine copy. First edition. Frontispiece. xviii, [ii], 404, viii, 437, [blank]pp. 8vo. WITH A REPORT ON THE STATE OF THE US NAVY. Rockwell's time with the navy came by accident rather than by design: "passage to the Mediterranean ... had been granted him by the Secretary of the Navy, and as there was no Chaplain on board, he yielded to inducements offered him to discharge the duties of the office during most of the succeeding cruise of two years and a half" (preface). Departing Boston for Europe, the newly employed chaplain recounts visits to Gibraltar, Minorca, Barcelona, Naples and Rome, before returning to the Atlantic via stops along the Spanish coast. The second volume of the text completes the tour of the Mediterranean and includes more exotic destinations such as Liberia and Brazil. Wide-eyed upon embarking, Rockwell finishes this work with a treatise on the state of the navy, encouraging wider reading for the men, debating the efficacy of flogging and providing a wide-ranging overview of the men's vices.

        Offering of the Mandan Indians

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1842. Aquatint engraving by Himely after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, blindstamp. Rare India proof of the Himely plate. This title was printed from two separate plates: one by Himely with heavy use of aquatint and three horseman to the left of the mid-ground and no birds, and a second by L. Weber with light use of aquatint, particularly in the foreground, no horsemen and numerous birds Bodmer painted this potent scene of a Mandan skull shrine in November of 1833, shortly before the onset of winter. The shrine was located near the burial ground of Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch, and was related to the Mandan beliefs regarding the human body after death and was used as a fasting ground for those seeking supernatural powers. Bodmer and Prince Maximilian overwintered at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart Rivers in the territory of the Mandans and the Hidatsas, and made full use of their time to record in detail the life, history and beliefs of the Indian Tribes around them. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

Während Creuzers Ansicht einer auf symbolischen Gemeinsamkeiten beruhenden monotheistischen Urreligion beim Religionsphilosophen J. J. Bachofen auf fruchtbaren Boden fiel, fand sie in Johann Heinrich Voss den entschiedensten Gegner ("Antisymbolik", 1824-26). Als "Mythen-Creuzer" stellt er eine Hauptfigur der deutschen Hochromantik dar. Creuzer führte zwei Jahre lang eine heimliche Liebe mit Caroline v.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale 1842 - Exemplaire personnel de Robert Merlin qui avait été nommé du vivant de S. de Sacy pour établir le catalogue de sa bibliothèque. Bel envoi autographe de Merlin sur la page de garde - ex-libris non identifié. Trois grands in-8° reliés demi-chagrin de l'époque, 12-LXIV-434 pages et 62 p. de tables - XV-416 pages - XXXI-472 pages. Antoine-Isaac, baron Silvestre de Sacy est un linguiste, philologue et un orientaliste - arabisant - français. Son père, Jacques Abraham Silvestre, était un notaire adepte du jansénisme établi à Paris qui avait plusieurs enfants. Ce fut pour se distinguer de ses frères qu’Antoine-Isaac Silvestre ajouta à son nom celui du village de Sacy, situé dans l’Yonne. Il fut anobli en 1809 avec le titre de chevalier d’Empire, puis, en 1813 de baron d’Empire. Par la suite, son titre fut confirmé par Louis XVIII. Encore enfant à la mort de son père, il reçut de sa mère une éducation religieuse et manifesta un don précoce pour les langues. Le bénédictin dom George François Berthereau lui enseigna l'hébreu à l'âge de douze ans en lui faisant lire ses prières dans le texte original. Après l’hébreu, il apprit presque sans maître le syriaque, le samaritain, le chaldéen, l’arabe, le persan et le turc, puis l’anglais, l’allemand, l’italien et l’espagnol. Après des études littéraires, il étudia le droit et fut nommé, en 1781, conseiller à la Cour des monnaies. Tout en remplissant ses fonctions, il continuait avec ardeur ses travaux de linguistique. Dès 1780, il commença à publier, dans le Répertoire de littérature biblique d’Eichhorn, des notes sur une version syriaque du livre des Rois, des traductions de lettres écrites par des Samaritains à Scaliger, etc., et fut nommé, en 1785, membre libre de l’Académie des inscriptions. Il publia alors dans le recueil de cette compagnie des mémoires Sur l’histoire des Arabes avant Mahomet, Sur l’origine de leur littérature, puis il fit des traductions et écrivit, de 1787 à 1791, Sur les antiquités de la Perse, quatre mémoires qui attestaient autant d’érudition que de sagacité. En 1791, il devint un des commissaires généraux chargés de surveiller la fabrication des monnaies et, l’année suivante, fut nommé membre en titre de l’Académie des inscriptions. Hostile aux grandes réformes de la Révolution, il se démit de ses fonctions de commissaire en 1792 et se retira dans une propriété dans le village d'Ognes dans l'Oise, où il continua ses travaux favoris et se livra notamment à des recherches sur la religion des Druzes. En 1795, la Convention ayant créé une école de langues orientales, il fut appelé à y enseigner l’arabe. Cette même année, on rétablit l’Institut et le savant orientaliste devint membre de la section de littérature et des beaux-arts. Mais son refus de jurer haine à la royauté ne permit pas de l’admettre dans le docte corps, dont il ne fit partie qu’en 1803. Toutefois, il conserva sa chaire d’arabe et devint, à la même, époque, un des rédacteurs du Journal des savants. Les nombreux et importants travaux qu’il fit paraître depuis lors accrurent considérablement sa réputation et le placèrent au premier rang des orientalistes qui se sont occupés d’arabe et de persan. En 1805, il fut chargé d’aller à Gênes pour y découvrir des manuscrits orientaux ; mais ses recherches furent sans résultat, et il dut se borner à rapporter des documents historiques intéressants. Nommé professeur de persan au Collège de France en 1806, il entra au Corps législatif comme député de Paris en 1808, y siégea jusqu’à la Restauration et reçut, en 1813, le titre de baron de l'Empire. Silvestre de Sacy applaudit avec enthousiasme au retour des Bourbons. Après les Cent-Jours, il devint membre de la commission d’instruction publique, puis du conseil royal et fut plus tard, nommé administrateur du Collège de France et de l’École spéciale des langues orientales. En 1822, il fonda avec Abel-Rémusat la Société asiatique [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Junction of the Yellow-Stone River with the Missouri

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, proof printed in black, brown and blue, and without the imprint or the English title. Small chip to upper right corner. A very rare experimental proof of the Salathé plate, with three colours used to ink different areas of a single printing plate. This title was printed from two different plates, one engraved by Salathé with six pronghorn antelope in the foreground and the French title starting 'Réunion.', the second by L. Weber with nine antelope in the foreground, a further seven in the mid-ground and the the French title starting 'Confluent.' The travelers, aboard the steamer Assiniboine arrived at Fort Union, just above the junction of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers, on 24 June 1833, after a journey of seventy-five days up the Missouri River from St.Louis. They stayed until 6 July, when they departed upriver by keelboat for Fort McKenzie. Fort Union was the uppermost point of steamer traffic at the time of Bodmer's visit and like most fur company posts on the Missouri at this time, was situated on a low open prairie sufficiently large to accommodate the large encampments of numerous Indians during the height of the trading season. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

        The Travellers meeting with Minatarre Indians. Near Fort Clark

      Paris, London, Coblenz, 1842. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Alex Manceau after Bodmer. This is one Bodmer's most famous images: the only depiction he made of both his sponsor, Prince Maximilian, and of himself. The travelers spent the winter of 1833-1834 at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart rivers in the territory of the Mandan and Hidatsa Tribes, Bodmer here shows the their first meeting to with the Hidatsas outside the palisade fortification of the fort; a carefully composed image ably portraying the wary curiosity with which the representatives of two very different ways of life greeted each other. Bodmer stands, top-hatted, to the far right, Prince Maximilian is next to him, Dreidoppel is visible behind the two of them. The individuals amongst the Hidatsa include Ahschüpsa Masihichsi (`Chief of the Pointed Horn') whom Bodmer had painted on 28 February 1834. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.
